#ARCSChat Bonus March 2020 Episode: COVID-19

March 27, 2020
"Plans are useless, but planning is indispensable." This quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower looms over this entire special episode of #ARCSchat. In it we discuss dealing with collections care in the time of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent closing of many of our institutions. The guests on this episode consist of several members of the ARCS board discussing what their institutions do, offering some ideas and resources for what collections care looks like now, keeping staff busy and motivated, and what's happening with our loans.
 
One important resource that was mentioned is the David Carmichael book Implementing the Incident Command System At the Institutional LevelAs always, if you wish to reach out to anyone on the panel please email info@arcsinfo.org. To continue the conversation, visit the forum on the ARCS website ArcsInfo.org or contact us on Twitter at @ARCS4All.

The courier conundrum: Send or don't send? We tackle the ethics and responsibility behind the decision to send a courier and all that's involved in making the decision.  This chat will work in conjunction with the courier training workshop put on by ARCS in Ft. Worth, Texas at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. This workshop will address the necessary skills required to travel as well as seek to establish a standard in the quality of supervision. We will also reference research done by ARCS about when institutions decide to send a courier and, if so, who.
